Our churches cost around £130,000 in total to run each year; or around £2,500 every week. Last year, roughly:
- 39% was given to the diocese towards the cost of having a vicar
- 23% went on the cost of maintaining and running the buildings
- 15% went on the cost of having a curate
- 15% went on the cost of services, mission and charitable donations
- 6% went on administration and office expenses
- 2% went on other miscellaneous expenses
We cover a third of the costs of running the church through hiring out the halls, but the bulk of our income comes through contributions from our members.
